Red Cross offering Amazon gift cards to blood donors

By  | 

(WNDU) - The American Red Cross is urging people to donate blood, especially if they are Type O or Type O-negative.

The agency says it's at a critical shortage for the two types hospitals use the most.

Northeast Indiana hospitals have less than a two-day supply available for emergency rooms, according to our reporting partners at News Now Warsaw.

The Red Cross says anyone who donates between now and June 10 will get a $5 Amazon gift card.
